spirent communications plc (SPT) Key Developments

Spirent Communications Introduces Spirent C1 Automotive Test System

Spirent Communications introduced the Spirent C1 Automotive Test System, a new solution for testing automotive ethernet functionality and security. The Spirent C1 Automotive Test System is the first fully integrated test solution to support the BroadR-Reach industry standard, helping auto makers to successfully deploy Ethernet-based communications technology. BroadR-Reach, being adopted by auto makers worldwide, uses Ethernet-based communications in vehicles for new functionalities such as multiple cameras and safety radars, infotainment, and Internet connectivity for telematics and other consumer applications. Because it offers the higher capacity data transmission required for bandwidth-intensive applications, it is also a key technology in the development of future connected vehicles.

Spirent Communications to Demonstrate 400G Ethernet Test Solution

Spirent Communications announced the first public showing of its 400G Ethernet Test System, with live demonstrations at Light Reading's Big Telecom Event in Chicago, USA, June 17-18, 2014. Spirent, Huawei and Xilinx have been collaborating for more than six months to successfully complete testing of Huawei's NE5000E core router using the Spirent 400G Ethernet Test System. The tests verified the layer 1-3 quality and highlighted error free performance with different combinations of streams, frame lengths and rates including a single stream running at full line rate. Solution Highlights: 400GbE Put to the Test: The IEEE predicts that mobile devices, high-speed data center servers, internet-enabled entertainment, cloud computing and social media will push network link speeds to 1Tb/s by 2015 and 10 Tb/s by 2020. While the development of 400G network devices will help address the expanding demands for network capacity, they present new testing challenges and push the limits of today's technologies. Testing 400G devices starts with validating the link's ability to pass up to line rate traffic, as well as testing the functionality, performance, scalability and quality of experience (QoE) of the upper-layer engines that deliver services. Spirent has developed a complete testing solution for early design and development of 400G Ethernet systems, with a one-slot blade form factor compatible with Spirent's existing chassis and its other Ethernet products. Key features of the solution include: Sending and receiving Ethernet frames from 64 to 16K bytes in length; generating and analyzing 400G traffic as a single stream running at line rate or as an aggregation of multiple streams; compensating for small clock differences between link partners with parts per million (PPM) adjustment; delivering per-port and per-stream statistics such as latency, frames out of sequence, frame counts and rates, and layer 1 statistics to help debug physical link problems; allowing modification of generated frame contents; and capturing received traffic at wire rate.

Ruetz System Solutions Selects Spirent Communications for Automotive Ethernet Testing

Spirent Communications announced that Ruetz System Solutions, the experts in automotive data communications, selected its latest Automotive Test System to validate the performance and reliability of in-vehicle networking. For automotive manufacturers, the 'connected car' gained major importance. In particular, Ethernet networking in automobiles opens up a realm of opportunities while placing new requirements on component conformance and cyber security. The heterogeneous nature of automotive components and the high standards for reliability and safety are driving the need for extensive compliance, performance and security testing. Ruetz's test lab will include Spirent's Automotive Test Platform with support for BroadR-Reach(R), the automotive Ethernet physical layer interface standard. In addition, the company will leverage Spirent for layer 2-3 conformance and performance testing.
